The first episode of ABC's millennial comedy Selfie premieres September 30th, and now you can stream the first episode online. Selfie is a modern retelling of My Fair Lady, which stars Doctor Who's Karen Gillan as "Eliza Dooley" a narcissistic social media addict who hires a marketing guru, played by Harold and Kumar's John Cho, to rehabilitate her image after she accidentally stars in an unflattering viral video. Watch the pilot (or just pretend to watch the pilot while you check your Instagram) on Hulu. »

What can you tell me about Twelve and Clara's dynamic on Doctor Who? — Aisha
Things will be very different between the pair now that the Doctor — to put it gently — has a few more years on him. In fact, without her schoolgirl crush influencing her, Clara begins to come into her own and be more assertive in their relationship. "I think she succeeds in dominating him, telling him what to do," Peter Capaldi teases. But don't expect him to be a total pushover. "She can only get so far with that," Capaldi says. "Then he'll turn. He often turns."
What is Juice up to when the new season of Sons of Anarchy begins? — Luke

ABC teamed up with Hulu for the early release of the new show Selfie. The strangely titled show is a modern take on the classic My Fair Lady. The show stars Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan plays the main character Eliza Doolittle, who is a non-respected pharmaceutical sales rep. She decides to enlist the help of a branding expert. That is where John Cho’s Henry comes into play. He will be the sound voice in her world that helps her work out her image issues. The series will have the official premier on September 30th.
The show seems to be not showing a lot of support yet. Fans have avoided the subject of the possible nightmare of being common with the supposed musical that it is inspired by-while it premiers. The show doesn’t seem to hold a lot of hope right now. Maybe that is why ABC decided »

The latest marketing move from ABC for its upcoming sitcom “Selfie,” if nothing else, is fitting with theme.
The Alphabet debuted the pilot of the series on Hulu and ABC.com ahead of its premiere next month. The show, a modern retelling of “My Fair Lady,” stars Karen Gillan of “Doctor Who” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” fame as Eliza Dooley, a narcissist who is obsessed with becoming famous over social media. John Cho plays a marketing guru who helps her rebrand her image after a video of hers goes viral, showing her there’s more to it than Facebook and Twitter — hence, the irony of debuting the show via social media.
Still, to debut a show over social media that targets Millennials is certainly appropriate for its desired audience. The show is not set to premiere on ABC for more than a month, with an airdate of Sept. 30.

Question: Anything at all on the final season of Sons of Anarchy? —Jennifer
Ausiello: Tara’s spirit will loom large throughout the final 13 episodes, but Maggie Siff won’t be embodying that spirit. Asked if the actress might appear in a recreated flashback or as a vision to her widowed hubby, series creator Kurt Sutter tells me, “I’ve never done flashbacks or dream sequences on this show. They tend to pull me out of the reality of a show like this. »

Peter Capaldi remembers the car that came to his London home last August to drive him to the live TV special that revealed him to be Doctor Who's newest star. Because it only took him to a parking lot.

"Then I was put in the backseat, covered in a blanket, and taken away to become the Doctor. This is a true story."

What I will say is that we’ll share the Q&A after the first episode airs, this Saturday 23rd August, which delves into the process of Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor, his experience and new relationship with the cast. The episode is also takes on an interesting change of pace, with a very distinct new vibe and Gothic tone. Some might say, those hardcore Whovians, that it’s a return to the old days and I found it unexpectedly refreshing but still laced with plenty of surprises.
These brand new stills show more of the new/old world coming our way that are – pretty much – all from the first episode. The only »
